Corporate Affiliates Program

Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) 2015-16

Computing talent is scarce, right at the time your company needs it more than ever. The good news? The College of Computing at Georgia Tech can supply precisely the talent you need to fuel your company’s future. Our undergraduate programs are experiencing record enrollments, and that means a growing stream of new graduates from a Top 10 school.

The College’s Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) offers advantages to help you improve your competitive position among recruiters. By partnering, you will both strengthen and widen your recruiting pipeline through increased awareness among our students and young alumni. And because your partnership contributions support our outreach efforts, you will help keep that pipeline flowing for years to come.
